Re: Corona Virus!

On Japanese TV station NHK, I saw a report that many kids who can’t go to school due to the closings sneak out when their parents aren’t home because it is boring at home. They are hanging out in arcades and such. Also, some classes are opening on a limited basis with about nine kids spread apart in...

I would agree, a lot of p...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Something different from Concepción, not just the routine savagery. That unfortunate cop on the ground had been attacked by the mob, (he suffered a brain haemorrage). But in this pic, the two protesters straddling his defenceless body are actually trying to protect him from further assault. There a...

Re: Green chiles

Here in the USA I buy bottled hatch salsa. Hatch chile’s are very good and tasty.

Have you tried local Peruvian green salsa from huacatay and aji [edit] chiles? Not the same but also a tasty green salsa, if you can’t get hatch. It is good on buttered bread.

IT IS LITERALLY THE FIRST REASON FOR THEIR EXISTENCE. no political bullshit interference there. I wonder how long until someone files a freedom of info act claim, and how h...

Re: Plebiscite

I think that the water rights argument would be a strong issue, especially in rural areas. But, wouldn't it be easier if more water is needed to just "tax" water rights owners by "taxing" away 20% of "water" property acquired (payable in water)? I don't see why a constitutional change is needed for ...
